Mill Hill GC was the perfect setting for the 2021 Men and Women's Senior Championship. Lee Cox and his greenstuff had the course in perfect condition, David and Tracey Beal worked tirelessly to ensure that the event ran smoothly, and Emilio and his catering staff worked around the clock for the two days to make sure that all the competitors were fed and watered.
110 men and women took to the course on Friday to play the first 18 holes with the 15 lowest-grossing men and the 6 lowest-grossing women making it through to the second and final day. It was a beautifully warm sunny day but scoring was difficult on the demanding layout but Lulu Housman shot a fantastic 76 to leaf by eight shots while David Sullivan used his home course advantage to lead with a 73.
On day two, tee times were moved forward 30mins as the forecast was poor. It rained for the early part of the round but thankfully it cleared up and play was uninterrupted. Lulu Housman was just too strong and fired a 74 to cap off a sensational win. Tom Griffin also shot a 74 to come from two shots back and win by 4 on his maiden try in the Senior Championship.
Tom and Lulu will represent Middlesex at the County Champion of Champions tournament at Woodhall Spa.
